The HH lacy mitts were one of the first thing I crocheted but it would appear the *only* yarn one can get in the UK is double knit.  So I heavily modified the pattern so I could make gloves that fit rather than the huge things I made with the lacy mitts pattern.

They use very little yarn and make up really quickly so I'll be making more in more colours.

I also think I'll be crocheting some flowers to sew to the backs to pretty them up.

It took a fair bit of trial and error to get them right and I'm really happy with how they turned out.

Hope you like them.  I wrote the pattern out if anyone would like it.

Thanks for looking.

Oooh, I'm loving these!

I started to try and make the gloves in the HH, but still being a bit of a trial and error learner I struggled from the get go.

These look comfortable and simple, I'd love the pattern to make Christmas gifts.

And I totally get your double knit in the UK woes, it's the only thing readily available and at a reasonable price.

I shall add the pattern then  Smiley

I was wondering if my friends would like them for Christmas too.....

I'm fairly sure I wrote the pattern right, I'll re-check when I make the next pair.

Let me know how you get on with it.

Oh yes, Repentant Angel will be making these. Repentant Angel's campus keeps the air conditioners on in the winter.  Shocked Repentant Angel's knuckles are chapped from the cold, and she will be making these. Maybe after she makes these, she will be warm enough to refrain from talking about herself in the third person. Grin


Repentant Angel thanks you for the pattern. Cheesy

you are welcome  Smiley

I've nearly finished my second pair, pink this time.  Weirdly, even though both yarns were dk this pair is less chunky and I've put an extra two rows in the back of the hand bit.  dk seems to be rather variable!
